With your help we can provide hope for
these 15 million starving people in the DRC,
significantly decrease the chance of a future genocide in Rwanda,
and help leaders from all African countries to gain a university degree in leadership
that will give them the skills to create real change in their society.

THE AIM OF THE INSTITUTE OF ADVANCED LEADERSHIP
Our aim is to be a catalyst in transforming the world through transforming leadership: to influence as many influential people as possible to have the greatest positive influence on their organisations and countries as possible.
It's our intention:
We believe Zig Ziglar's creed that "You'll get whatever you want in life if you'll just help enough other people get what they want". And we also accept the Dalai Lama's assertion that "There is no difference between the truly selfless person and the wisely selfish person".
So you could say that our aim is to teach people to be wisely selfish. (Of course the emphasis is on improving our wisdom rather than our selfishness: People are already quite practised at being unwisely selfish - and therefore unhappy, unfulfilled, and limited in their success.)
And as wars and poverty are caused by people's behaviours, attitudes, beliefs and approaches, it is possible to overcome these through teaching people to achieve what they want in a way that is better for themselves - and everyone else.
And so we will keep working till the world is free of poverty and where the great mass of men and women lead lives of deep fulfilment.
"In a global world, one can only be at
peace if there is global peace.
In the past, wars (open or covert) were limited to the countries that waged them.
You could ignore a war provided it was far enough away from you.
Now there is no longer any such thing as far enough.
Unless everyone is at peace, everyone is under threat."
- Samuel Sagan (written shortly after the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.)
